Virtual base creation


Maestro3d.dental.studio.virtual.base1.png


In order to add the virtual base for the maxillary and mandibular models, press the button 1 as shown in the picture above. The first step to perform when doing virtual base editing is to define a trimming line, to remove the unimportant areas of model.


Maestro3d.dental.studio.virtual.base2.png


In order to define the trimming line use SHIFT + click or drag with left mouse button to add a point. The cutting line must follow the whole profile of the models and must not have self intersecting parts. The trimming line should not be too close to the margin line of teeth.


TIPS:

  • SHIFT + left button click to add a point in the trimming line;
  • SHIFT + drag with left mouse button to draw the trimming line in continuous;
  • SHIFT + left button click on an existing point of the trimming line to remove it;
  • SHIFT + drag with left mouse on an existing point to move it;


As shown in the picture above, the trimming lines divides the dental arch in two parts. Please pay attention to the blue arrow that shows a point. This point, that can be moved with CTRL + left mouse button dragging, indicates the part that will be used; the other part will be discarded and replaced with the virtual base.


This operation must be repeated two times, one for each arch. At the end of the trimming line definition the software shows the editing screen of the virtual base. See image below.


Maestro3d.dental.studio.virtual.base3.png


In this step is possible to manipulate the control points of the virtual base in order to change dimension, aspect and position. Please see the following picture to know in details the available editing tools:


Ortho.virtual.base3.png


A: changing base border shape: dragging points located at base border. It is possible to change the shape of the border itself, add/remove points using shift + left mouse double click, draw the base border just using the shift + left mouse button dragging near to the base border. Finally, dragging the arrows located at base border it is possible to move the border up and down.

B: changing base shape: dragging points and arrows located at corners of virtual base. It is possible to change the shape of the virtual base (for example it is possible to change the width and the length of bases). During all the editing operations, constraints that exists between angles/sides of base are preserved.

C: changing base height: dragging the arrow positioned at base bottom it is possible to change the height of bases (this option it's disabled for ABO bases).

All operations concerning virtual base editing process are performed with SHIFT + left mouse button dragging .

Using the “Symmetrical changes” checkbox, editing will be performed simultaneously on both bases.

Virtual setup

Tooth segmentation


Maestro3d.dental.studio.segmentation1.png


The tooth segmentation stage must be performed prior to perform the virtual setup. As shown in the picture above the tooth segmentation is composed by 3 consecutive steps:


  • 1 - Margin line detection (tooth by tooth);
  • 2 - Optimization of all the trimming lines detected to the step above;
  • 3 - Define tooth local axes;


Tooth segmentation - detect margin line


Prior to execute the first step of tooth segmentation, mesio distal mesurements must be performed for each tooth. The picture below shows as appears the screen or the teeth segmentation.


Maestro3d.dental.studio.segmentation2.png


If the mesio distal measures has been correctly performed, the software will automatically compute a trimming line along the tooth's margin. In order to add or delete a control point of the trimming line, do a double click with left mouse button. In order to move a point of the line just drag it with the left mouse button.


Pressing the SHIFT key, the software will show the end points of the mesio distal measure used to calculate the margin line. In order to modify these end points hold the SHIFT and the left mouse button (SHIFT + left mouse dragging to move existing points, SHIFT + double click to add / remove points). After finishing the change on the control points the software will recompute the line.


  • 1 - Cancel the current line, undo / redo last operation;
  • 2 - Change the camera's view with respect to the current tooth; press on the arrows to change the camera's view;
  • 3 - Proceed with the next tooth, go back to the previous, cancel and go back to the main screen;


Tooth segmentation - global trimming line


Maestro3d.dental.studio.segmentation3.png


The next step, as shown in the picture below, analyze all the trimming lines previously detected and join it based on interproximal distance. The join parameters that appears in the top left area of the screen, shows the distance below which the lines will be joined. On the image below, you can see an example that shows the result by applying a value of 1.0 mm (image on the left) and a value of 0.5 mm (image on the right).


Ortho.studio.cutting.line.join.png


TIPS:

  • To add a point between two consecutive points, double-click with left mouse button near the edge of the two points;
  • To remove a point, double-click over it with left mouse button;
  • To move a point, do left mouse button dragging;
  • Click with center mouse button to change the rotation center of the trackball;


Tooth segmentation - define tooth local axes


Maestro3d.dental.studio.segmentation4.png


The picture above shows a screen related to the change of reference coordinate for the teeth. This step is really important in order to execute a correct virtual setup. The light blue circle of the manipulator represents the center of rotation (origin of the coordinate system), the red arrow represents the occlusal axis and the blue arrow represents the lingual axis. In order to change the tooth axes, double click with left mouse button over the tooth and use the manipulator to perform the changes. When moving the manipulator the virtual root also changes direction.


Maestro3d.dental.studio.segmentation5.png


The tool shown in the top right part of the picture above, point 1, allows to align the camera along some predefined views. Clicking on the tooth at point 1 will be possible enable / disable the exclusive visualization of currently selected tooth in order to perfom easily the needed changes. Use the tool on the left side of the screen in order to change the root dimension. Please look at picture below:


Maestro3d.dental.studio.segmentation.local.origo.toolbox.png


  • 1 - Change the transparency for the teeth and gum;
  • 2 - Select a tooth;
  • 3 - Change the length of the virtual root;
  • 4 - Change the center of rotation of the tooth expressed as percentage of the height of the crown or as percentage of the root;
  • 5 - Recompute all the axes in automatic (discard all the previously performed changes);
  • 6 - Apply to all the teeth the settings related to the length of the root and to the rotation center;
  • 7 - Import the real roots from CBCT (roots must be in STL);
  • 8 - Cancel the real roots;


Maestro3d.dental.studio.segmentation6.png


Use the real roots, when available, is really important in order to exactly determine the axes of the teeth and to know the exact position of the roots. The software allows to combine the scanned crowns with the real roots, obtaining a very accurate and detailed final 3D Model very useful in the successive steps. The picture above shows an example of scanned crowns merged with roots coming from a CBCT scan. The merging process is fast, easy and totally automatic.


Virtual setup


Maestro3d.dental.studio.virtual.setup1.png


  • 1 - Virtual setup;
  • 2 - Attachment designer, add new attachment shapes to the attachments library;


During the virtual setup, it is possibile to translate and rotate the teeth, in order to obtain the expected final position. In order to select a tooth, do a click with the left mouse button on the tooth to select. When a tooth is selected, its color become light blue. It is also possible to select more teeth pressing the CTRL key and doing a click with the left mouse button on the teeth to select. The image below shows a screen of the virtual setup.


Maestro3d.dental.studio.virtual.setup2.png


TIPS:

  • SHIFT + left mouse button to translate the selected teeth with respect to the current view;
  • CTRL + drag with left mouse button to rotate the selected tooth with respect to the current view;
  • CTRL + click with the left mouse button to make the multi selection;
  • Click with the middle mouse button to change the center of rotation of the trackball;




Layers


The layers are the steps that are useful to work with some groups of teeth in different periods, ie:

we can move the posterior teeth and create a layer1;

then we can move the anterior teeth and create a layer2;


Ortho.studio.virtual.setup2.png


As result of creating 2 layers, when the software will build the set of virtual models, we will obtain a similar sequence:


Original Model
virtual model (1) clear aligner 1
virtual model (2) clear aligner 2
... ...
Layer1 clear aligner L1
virtual model (k) clear aligner k
virtual aligner (k+1) clear aligner k+1
Layer2 clear aligner L2


So the first set of aligners won't move all teeth but only the posterior ones. Only after some weeks, when you start to the layer1 you will be ready to move the anterior teeth. This example shows the potentiality of the layers. Choose the correct number of layers for a given orthodontic treatment greatly affect the success of the treatment itself.


Ortho.studio.virtual.setup.layers.png


It is possible to change any layer in any moment during the treatment plan.

Movement overview


With this toolbox it is possible to select a tooth from the combo menu and access to all operations of the selected tooth.


Maestro3d.dental.studio.virtual.setup.movement.overview.toolbox.png


  • 1) list of all the teeth;
  • 2) Reset the position of the selected tooth;
  • 3) Extract / restore the selected tooth;
  • 4) Movements in the canonical directions of the selected tooth. The rotations are expressed in degrees and translations in millimeters. In order that the set up values have sense, it is necessary to have set up conveniently the axes for each tooth;
  • 5) Intersection value;
  • 6) IPR value in comparison with the adjacent teeth;
  • 7) Tooth height;


IPR - Interproximal reduction


Interproximal reduction (IPR), also known as tooth stripping, is used when teeth are overcrowded and involves the dentist stripping away a portion tooth in order to create space. During setup phase, it is possible to active the IPR pressing with right mouse button over a given tooth. A popup will appear and it will be possible to choose with which adjacent teeth do the IPR. Please see picture below.


Maestro3d.dental.studio.virtual.setup.IPR1.png


A blade will appear in between selected teeth and from the apposite tools available on the left side of the screen will be possible to change the blade size, move the blade, etc.. The picture below shows the step of the IPR with the blade in between the teeth and on the right side the result after the trim.


Maestro3d.dental.studio.virtual.setup.IPR2.png


In the section related to the IPR on the left of the screen, the value of IPR can be selected, (please see picture below); it is also possible to select the tickness of the blade (expressed in millimeters), to apply the IPR to one tooth or both, etc. In order to perform the operation of IPR, just tap on the button Ipr32.png.


Maestro3d.dental.studio.virtual.setup.IPR.toolbox.png


  • 1) Virtual setup tab;
  • 2) IPR tab;

    • compute IPR;
    • reset manipulator;
    • show / hide manipulator;


Please consider that in a given layer, the IPR will be always applied to the teeth in its original position. This behaviour it is motivated by the fact that the cut can be done only before putting the clear aligner, because we must have the exact shape of the teeth. In the case that the teeth are already moved, before to apply the IPR, the software will move temporarily in their initial position and after the cut will restore the position choosen by user.

Moreover, the IPR cutting plane is automatically computed. Finally, take into account that if you choose to do 1 mm of IPR between two teeth, for example between 22-23, 0.5 mm will be applied to a 22 and 0.5 mm to 23. Otherwise use the manipulator to change the position of the cut.

  • 5 - Number of virtual models that will be created. The label indicates if a template model for the positioning of the attachments / brackets will be created;


TIPS:

  • In order that the values which have been set up to the point 2 and to the point 3 make sense, it is necessary to have set up conveniently the axes for each tooth;
  • By changing a whatever value at the point 2, 3, 4 and 5, the other ones will be automatically recomputed;


Clear aligner


Maestro3d.dental.studio.clear.aligner.toolbar.png


  • 1 - Clear aligners;
  • 2 - Clear aligner for the bracket's placement;
  • 3 - Clear aligner for the bracket's placement using jig;


In order to construct the clear aligners, press the button 1. The picture below shows the main screen of the function to create clear aligners.


Maestro3d.dental.studio.clear.aligner1.png


The first step is to define a trimming line in order to remove the unnecessary model parts. In order to define the trimming line, hold SHIFT key and left mouse button. Trimming line must follow all the profile of the 3D model, must not auto intersect and must not pass too close to the tooth margin. During this step is possible to change the currently selected virtual model (from the above drop down menu located in the toolbar). In this way is possible to evaluate if the trimming line passes through the expected point for all the virtual models.


It is possible to notice that there is a color map over the model. This color map represents the undercut areas that will change accordingly with the choosen insertion direction.


TIPS:

  • SHIFT + left mouse button click to add a point to the trimming line;
  • SHIFT + left mouse button dragging to draw the line in continuos;
  • SHIFT + left mouse button click on a point of the line to remove it;
  • SHIFT + left mouse button draggin on a point to move it;


As shown in the picture above, the trimming line divides the model in two parts. Please pay attention to the blue arrow that shows a point. This point, that can be moved with CTRL + left mouse button dragging, indicates the part that will be used for the construction of the clear aligner. Is really important to position this point in the part showing clear aligner.


Maestro3d.dental.studio.clear.aligner.toolbox.png


  • 1 - Sets the current view as the insertion direction. Delete the cutting line, undo /redo operation;
  • 2 - Removes undercuts;
  • 3 - computation type;
  • 4 - thickness of the clear aligner (expressed in mm);
  • 5 - offset from reference model (expressed in mm);
  • 6 - offset of the auxiliary parts (eg. attachments and labels);
  • 7 - drill radius. In the case of manufacturing through a milling machine is important to set in the software, the radius of the minimum tool used during the milling in order to obtain a correct result;
  • 8 - Apply the construction of the aligner to the currently selected model only or to all the transition models;
  • 9 - When selecting to construct the model for all the transition models it is possible to choose if to create the aligner for the scanned models and /or for the segmented model;


Below an example of clear aligner designed with the clear aligner module.
